IANAL, but my understanding is that DMCA safe harbour is contingent on your 
accepting DMCA takedown notices, which is rather problematic for Freenet (and 
not very useful either).

Have a look at the EFF's legal advice for (US-based) p2p devs. One important 
thing they say is you can either filter everything or filter nothing; we take 
the latter approach.
